But that's not all that has been upgraded, taking a page from the 1X and OD1N laboratories, the boot offers an titanium composite quarter package and features the speed plate insoles.
The quarter package uses a similar 3D-lasted technology to that of the MX3, but the added feature of Titanium helps to increase stiffness and responsiveness of the boot. Total edge comfort pads line the top of the boot to reduce abrasions against the leg when turning and integrated wear pads on the liner increase overall durability of the skate. Around the ankle on the inside of the boot, lightweight memory foam pads replace traditional anaform foam for a personal fit and mould. A 37.5 technology polyester liner keeps the skate at a ridiculously low weight and provides moisture wicking technology using your sweat to dry the liner.
The tongue of the boot features a combination 52oz/40oz white felt construction with comfort padding on the back for a better fit against your foot. As well, the C-Flex technology allows you to control the stiffness for the perfect feel when skating. Moving down the boot, the Bauer Speed Plate insoles feature a recovery alloy that provides you with a revolutionary customized fit that can be moulded time and time again with no ill effects. The Speed Plate insoles mould directly to you and increase the contact area between your foot and the outsole of the skate enabling better balance and stability at all speeds.
An ultra lightweight vented composite outsole provides stability and reduce torsion of the skate when striding and the Bauer Lightspeed Edge holder sits 3mm taller than the previous Lightspeed 2 to tighten the turning radius of the skate. Tuuk Lightspeed 4 steel accompanies the holder and offers an elite grade of steel with a superior finish for stronger edges. It also provides an additional 3mm of height for tighter turning again, without bottoming out.
